Pankaj Advani lifts IBSF World Billiards Championship

Ace Indian cueist Pankaj Advani at Doha won the IBSF World Billiards Championship.

Advani clinched his 17th world title after thrashing his arch-rival Mike Russell of England 6-2 to defend the 150-up format title which he won in Bengaluru last year.

Advani, winner of maximum number of world titles in any sport by an Indian, earlier in the semi-finals overcome fellow Indian Rupesh Shah 5-2, while Russell got the better of Singapore’s Peter Gilchrist 5-1.

Advani will be eyeing a ‘Grand Double’ as the lengthier format or the long-up of the IBSF World Billiards Championship 2017 begins today at Doha.
